◦◦SONIC CHIC Electric Toothbrush◦◦
Whilst I am a firm believer in buying people gifts that they want, rather than need, achieving both with one gift is optimum. You can, with this Sonic Electric Toothbrush. It is also available in a beautiful rose gold – I am rather tempted to get that one for myself – and gold too.
The toothbrush comes with a USB charger and has an impressive 3,200 brushstrokes per minute. It as a precision head which makes it easy to get to those hard to reach places, and there are also two individual speed settings. One of my favourite things about this toothbrush is the fact that it has a timer on it, which signals what the ideal brushing time is.
Perhaps the perfect gift to put a smile on someone's face this Christmas.

✦ 7th Heaven Face Masks ✦
Pamper gifts are always my favourite to receive so I always make the effort to give these gifts in return. People don't often take time to relax, and although Christmas is definitely one of my favourite times of the year, it can be quite stressful. Gifts like these face masks by 7th Heaven remind your loved ones to take it easy, relax and unwind. Perfect for Christmas evening after the fun and festivities, a face mask, a cuppa and some Christmas telly. Bliss!
All of 7th heaven face masks are completely natural and cruelty-free. There are lots of Christmas goody boxes and hampers to choose from to suit any skin type, and for your hair and body too. They are also incredibly affordable, making them perfect for Stockings.

◦◦Makeup Revolition – MySign Earth Palette◦◦
Makeup Revolution. The mere words cause a little flutter of excitement. Here at Girlie Gossip, we are HUGE fans of this brand, and we have been loving the new MySign collection. The Earth Palette (pictured) is a particular favourite. How stunning are those colours? This particular palette is made up of the Zodiac signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. I myself am a Leo, so don't worry if you are drawn to a palette that does not match your zodiac sign.
The collection also has a water, fire, and Air palette, grouped from the 12 zodiac signs, all of which are stunning. The shadows are nicely pigmented, blend like a dream, and they are £6! Each palette has 15 eyeshadows, a mixture of matte and shimmer. I had all four palettes, I kept the earth for myself and distributed the rest among my besties to suit their personalities.

These stylish compact mirrors from Lypsyl are perfect for popping into your handbag or makeup bag. We love the packaging of these, they are super cute but durable too, (they don't fall apart in your handbag.) They are enriched with shea butter, cocoa butter, and aloe vera which helps to repair chapped lips but also keeps them moisturised with daily use. They have an SPF15 too, so this product can be used year round.
The compacts are available in 4 individual scents, each one a different colour. The blue, my personal favourite, is the original. Described as being deliciously scented with a warm oriental fragrance with citrus notes of orange and lemon. There is also Zingy Orange, also delicious, with hints of vanilla. Then, Luxurious Vanilla with sweet caramel accords, and finally Orange blossom with notes of Jasmine and Ylang-Ylang.

This beautiful Cam'pouch in a botanical design would make a great stocking filler. Not only is it pretty but it is super practical too. I am a great fan of these multi-function items which help me to stay organised and be as minimal as possible.
This Cam'pouch can be used a makeup or jewellery bag, a pen tidy, for travel, or however you see fit. I personally would store my makeup brushes in it. You can zip it and use it like a pencil case, or fold it down and use it like a pot. It wipes clean, which really makes all the difference with items like this and it is really great quality too. If the botanical design doesn't float your boat, it is also available in a different design too.

◦◦Hair Accessories ◦◦
These Scunci hair accessories are a great stocking filler, I have wrapped these up for my niece and I know she is going to love them. We are truly in the age of YouTube and she spends so many hours watching videos of people doing hair, makeup and beauty tutorials and she is always trying to recreate what they do. So, helpful tools like these will definitely be a big hit.
The Fishtail braider was my favourite. Of course, I had to put it to the test myself and being a complete novice I was surprised that even I could do it unaided. The tool helps you to create a perfect fishtail braid super quick. An effortless and glamorous day or night. The Ponytail boost, also very simple to use, creates a more full looking ponytail.
